SONNETS OF SEVEN CITIES: SAN FRANCISCO, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: High-colored, sparkling, very much alive
Last Line: Her syncopating feet dance on again!
Subject(s): San Francisco


High-colored, sparkling, very much alive,
Her feet atingle ever for a dance,
Her eyes agleam with laughter and romance
Her brain alert to vision and contrive,
Gayly she greets what fortune may arrive
Fearless of any turn of circumstance;
Gives destiny a bright, flirtatious glance
And fate a wink—nor cares how they connive.

She jazzes to the music of the spheres
And then—'twixt dance and dance—with sudden thought,
She stops to fashion miracles; the years
Will look with wonder on the dreams she wrought.
And her smiles blithely on her work, and then
Her syncopating feet dance on again!
